St Rémy de Provence is unquestionably one of the highlights of Provence. This leafy market town was once occupied by the Romans, and later home to Vincent Van Gogh during some of his most productive years. Within a half-hour stroll of the town’s main square is Mas Cecile, a charming six-bedroom Mas set at the base of Les Alpilles foothills, in a landscape dominated by olive orchard, almond groves and Provencal garrigue.
Over three hectares of grounds are covered with lawn, olive orchard and oleander, with swathes of lavender spilling out from the borders. An outdoor dining terrace off the kitchen is draped in wisteria, gloriously in flower in May and early June.
Facilities include a swimming pool, which can be heated if required, and a tennis court. There’s table tennis, plus a games room with table football and billiards.
Six air-conditioned bedrooms and five modern bathrooms are well-divided across the property to provide a good sense of space and independence. A spacious master bedroom has its own staircase and a small private terrace, overlooking the grounds.
The Provencal décor is soft and homey, with regional tiled floors and air-conditioning for cool summer living. A large country-style kitchen opens directly onto the dining terrace and is perfect for preparing meals with items foraged at St Remy's weekly market.

Trust & Security
Action Fraud reported in 2018 that consumers lost over £7 million in online villa scams. We operate from a 'bricks and mortar' Office, are fully accountable, have full liability insurance and know all of our villas and their respective owners. Quite simply, we deliver on our promises.
Our sole aim is to understand the needs of each client and match them to exactly the right villa. We have no vested interest in any individual property.
All of our villas are listed by invitation only. No owner can pay for their property to be listed on the Red Savannah site.
The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more. And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites and other online sites will not only take on more or less any property willing to pay, but could expose the user to fraud. And if things go wrong, try getting hold of anyone to take responsibility! This is your holiday - Why risk it?
*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
The idea for Red Savannah was always based on a clear market need. A small team of the most experienced travel designers, supported by the latest technology and delivered with the lightest touch. In short, a travel company redefined for the 21st century.
